Rug Hooking Show

My Daughter and I  went on a road trip today.  There is a Rug hooking show  at the Sugar Creek Art Center in Thorntown, Indiana.     The show is called  "A Journey through the art of Traditional Rug Hooking"   The Puckihuddlers rug hooking group invites you  to come see the beautiful rugs  and wall pieces.  The center also has several Artist Studios.     These are 2 of the pieces in the show. The exhibit also  shows how to design a piece of linen to start a project.  The  show is open  Thurs Fri and Sat 11:00 to 5:00  A nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Missed Opportunity

 The reason I say this is a missed opportunity is I was at the Cedar Creek Winery last night with Farm Bureau's Ice Cream Social.  We usually visit different agri related business in Morgan County.  I didn't have my camera or phone to take pictures  This afternoon I went back to the winery to take some pictures to share with you.  They are Morgan Counties only winery they have been open since October 2010.  They are on the Indy Wine Trail.   Check them out at

Picnic and Rug Hooking

Even thought there was a call for rain  it was  a no show where we were in Clayton In.   We had our annual picnic for Puckihuddlers which is the name of our hooking group. Ladies came  from several towns come to this outing.  Some brought their projects and hooked  while visiting.   These are the same ladies that demonstrate rug hooking at the Indiana  State Fair in the Pioneer Village.  This year the State Fair runs from August 3rd thru  August the 19th.  Come join us!   Until next time take care

Time Flies

 Time flies when you are having fun and living life as it comes by.  Above is my new tree  and Zeus (I am running the water and he wants to get a drink)  That replaces the large spruce tree that died and only the top was still alive.  My son offered to replace it with this shrub which is a Weigela  it has a purple flower and variegated leaves  it will work well if it survives the transplanting.   My neighbor wanted to get rid of it.

This is  the spruce tree  I have enjoyed this tree outside  my kitchen window for  25 years and the birds used it every year for their nests.  I will  miss it but  there is a time for everything.

My Grandson ask me why there were so many nails in these boards that are the side of an old crib that sits 8 feet or so from the road.  Jim's Dad told me that many years ago our road was the way to Martinsville they passed by the crib and everyone who had a notice to hang nailed it to the side of the crib.    Like advertisements  when the circus came to town.  Some of the nails have a little ring from the sign.

Baby Animals

 This week sure did fly by.  I am still trapping caught 2 more the one above was very small maybe I would guess a baby.  When I let him out  he turned around hissed and chased me back to the truck.  My son said he wanted to go back home with me.  Good Chance!!  Below on Saturday while moving cattle to another pasture and cutting some hemlock plants so the cows don't eat them and found this little baby maybe a  few days old. 
 Went to Paragon to pick up Pizza the other night and when I was almost to my driveway I could see ahead 4 little black behinds strutin' up the road.   Made a call home to the guys to come get them back in the fence  I was blocking the way so they couldn't go toward the highway.   All this new fence and they get out.  The county replaced a bridge last year and put in a sewer tile that a  grownup could walk through that is how they walked out.
Well been getting a shower now and then but not much.    Hope it willl add up over the week
Stay safe until we talk again.
